YOUR VIEW: Let’s fight back and launch a credit union in face of latest bank closure

I read with interest, and agreement with, the letters sent to your paper regarding the closure of Lloyds Bank in Clay Cross. This was the very last financial establishment within Clay Cross and will pose a problem for businesses left in the town and the elderly. Also the unemployed.

LETTER: Things have changed since GP survey

LETTER: Things have changed since GP survey

On the face of it, the GP practice survey recently publicised in the Derbyshire Times is grim reading for patients of Royal Primary Care, which runs three surgeries in Chesterfield, Inkersall and Staveley. 
However, if you delve further into the survey results you will find that 76 per cent of its patients describe their overall experience of the practice as ‘good’ - far closer to the national average of 85 per cent and potentially a better measure of patient satisfaction.
